Celebrity star has also their own limitation where at first they will sparkle so brightly but sooner or later they will begin to fade away just like the stars in the sky. It is a tragic reality indeed particularly for some of the veteran actors and actresses who already lost in the limelight permanently. Right now, it is not new to us when we heard that some popular celebrities in the past are now encountering problems and difficulties in their lives. However, there are many celebrities who experienced a miserable and trouble in life after they quit on the limelight of the showbiz industry in spite of having a comfortable and flourishing life during the moments of their popularity.
Just like what happened to the popular child actor during the mid-90’s, Herminio Alano or commonly known by his screen name “Boy Alano.” His popular co-workers were Rene Requiestas and Panchito Alba.
A certain netizen shared the current status of Boy Alano on his Facebook post. As stated by his post that the latter is currently living in a nasty garage in Barangay 398 in Sampaloc, Manila. However, he also stated that the reason why he posts this is because he wanted to the public know his current situation and also for seeking some help from celebrities who used to work with Alano during the season that he was still active and working in the showbiz industry. And if some of you didn’t know, Alano appeared on many movies and television shows in the past.
As a matter of fact, he was even honored as the Best Child Actor at the 5th Asian Film fest in 1958 for the movie “The Day of the Trumpet”. He even used to become the Assistant Director of the movie “Chetae Gandang Lalaki” along with the comedian and veteran actor Joey De Leon who is the lead cast.
